Small enough to fit into your pocket, the Magewell USB Capture SDI Gen 2 dongle enables you to feed an SDI signal into your Laptop or Desktop PC for recording or streaming. Connect professional cameras, playback decks, broadcast and surveillance devices with ease, and capture video resolutions up to 2048×1080 at 60p. If you require a different output resolution, the dongle is able to convert it to your desired resolution internally. Other functions such as deinterlacing and scaling are also performed within the USB Capture SDI itself, reducing the processing load on your PC!



This dongle uses your PC’s existing USB drivers for plug-and-play capability across Windows, Mac and Linux Operating Systems. Furthermore, power is supplied through the included USB cable from your computer.



Note: The Magewell USB Capture SDI Gen 2 will work with both USB3.0 and USB2.0 ports, but resolution and frame rate capability will be reduced on USB 2.0 due to restricted bandwidth.
